Three Products Improved with Hydroformed Aluminum

Though carbon steel and stainless steel are two major contenders that benefit from hydroforming, they are not alone. Applications for aluminum hydroforming are on the rise. Today we will highlight three products significantly improved with hydroformed aluminum parts.

Tube Hydroforming: The Process Behind Lighter Components

Tube Hydroforming: The Process Behind Lighter Components

One of the main drivers in the automotive industry is the demand for faster processes and lighter components. One of the best methods for delivering lightweight components is known as hydroforming. Hydroforming enables the manufacturing of non-uniform areas by using a round-shaped tube as the feed-in material. Hydroformed component features can include a variety of cross sections that have different curved sections.

Fundamentals

It’s very important for modern manufacturers to understand tube hydroforming, especially if they work in certain industries. This is absolutely a technique that will be able to save a wide range of industrialists a lot of money over the years while allowing them to create better products.

Is the Pressure to Meet CAFE Standards Rising or Falling?

Is the Pressure to Meet CAFE Standards Rising or Falling?

Are CAFE standards rising or falling? If we know one thing about American policy and lawmaking, it’s that nothing stays static forever. Over the past centuries of our country’s history, we’ve enacted laws, rolled them back, and reenacted new ones in their places. This is the shape of progress: sometimes we must take a step back in order to take new steps forward.

What Is Tube Hydroforming?

One of the most popular and most unconventional metal forming processes is tube hydroforming. Tube hydroforming is generally used to create various tubular components. When this process is used, tubes are shaped into different forms using internal pressure to force the blank tube to fit into the shape of the given die cavity.

Tubular Hydroforming for Motorcycle Frame Manufacturing

Tubular Hydroforming for Motorcycle Frame Manufacturing

Motorcycle frame manufacturing is an ideal match for hydroforming technology. Motorcycle performance is a function of power and weight. Anything that can help reduce weight on a motorcycle without compromising structural integrity pays off in performance.

Where Would We Be Without High-Temperature Metal Gas Forming?

Where Would We Be Without High-Temperature Metal Gas Forming?

Although your average American probably has not heard of high metal gas forming, that does not mean they have not taken advantage of products made possible (or made better) through it. Those of us in the industry know better. We recognize that the vast majority of us would lead less comfortable and convenient lives without high-temperature metal gas forming.
